I liked this poem because it seemed to stay true to its title. Not only was it four minutes long but it also summed up the things that make America American. The poet bounced negatives off off the positives that really characterized out country. The music in the background accompanied the words following the energy of the poem. There was a comfortable flow through from topic to topic so that it never tripped up on any ideas. As a spoken word poem it was directed not at the reader but the listener. I felt that the tone that the poem was written in and the way the poet read it made me feel like he was talking directly to me.
